What are security deposits?
Many sites operate barrier systems to ensure good security, with refundable deposits for keys or cards to operate the barriers. These are typically equivalent to about £10, but can be more. They are payable on arrival and may be required in local cash or by a card swipe.
Barriers are typically closed from about 22:30-07:30hrs and at some sites during the lunch period (varying from site to site) to ensure peace, quiet and security for all.
Deposits may also be required for pool bracelets. Some sites operate a security bracelet system (which may double as a pool bracelet), usually in high season, to allow staff to identify bona fide campers.
Can I connect to the internet?
Many sites now offer Wi-Fi access on site. This is usually chargeable and not always available throughout the site. It is usually obtainable near reception (within about 50 metres). Many sites also offer internet access via computer positions, available for an hourly charge.
Phoning from abroad
Most people now have use of a mobile phone while abroad. This can be a convenient way of keeping in touch with home, but mobile phones cannot always be used with the freephone numbers given by some vehicle breakdown and insurance companies. Coverage in some areas, especially away from towns can be patchy or non-existent. Most public telephones are now card phones.
